“Atmosphere, wine, food - outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at the Sonoma Grille - in Pittsburgh's Cultural District. Friday night reservation was a good idea. We were greeted warmly and promptly asked if we had a show to attend. Many diners were taking advantage of the proximity to theaters. Service was excellent. Our main dish (Osso Buco) was heavenly. The wine list is lengthy and comprehensive. Staff and chef were attentive to my food allergies.
Although the room is large with high ceilings, the decor softens the volume and we felt cozy even though surrounded by other tables.

“Nice ambiance, quick walk from Convention Ctr hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011 via mobile

One of the few nicer restaurants open Sun evening downtown. Food a bit above average, but did not blow me away. Filet on salad good, pot roast special was nice, but not spectacular. Service excellent, very friendly. Nice bar & ambiance. 2 TVs on bar to watch game, but not obtrusive.

“Interesting place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

We had a wonderful time here - and enjoyed a great meal. Staff was friendly, from the hostess to the waitress to the bus staff. Busy place, but they made you feel welcome and appreciated. Food was excellent with a wide variety to choose from - great wine selection.

“Great, upscale dining in Downtown Pitt.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

Saw their menu on the "Local Attractions" book in our hotel room, and then saw the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not dissappointed. Service was very good, and the food better.

There were six of us in our party and everyone loved their food, from appetizer to entrees. My salmon was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.
